Thai-Cambodia Border Close Indefinitely As Conflicts Continue

Recommended Posts

Thai-Cambodia Border Close as Conflicts Continue

The Army Region 2 announced last night that the Thai-Cambodian border in some areas will be shut down indefinitely.

The Thai Army Region 2 announced the closure of the Thai-Cambodian border in the areas of Sakaeo, Sisaket, Surin, Trad, and Chanthaburi provinces last night, specifically at the chong jom, prasat ta kway and prasat ta muan tom border points. Merchants there have been left in a state of uncertainty and are evacuating from the border trade area.

Currently, many stores in the Surin province and Siamrath province are closed, with many schools like the Ban Darn school in the Karb Cherng district shut down as well, with no reopening date set yet. Administrative officers are prepared to evacuate all citizens in the border areas.

Other border points remain open, but have stringent checkpoints in place.

At Poipet ยเปต) border crossing, there has been a large decline in the number of traders and workers entering the popular Rong Kluea market, with roughly 200-300 people coming through per day.

One merchant said she feels uncertain about entering the Rong Kluea market in the early morning, and would want to assess the situation before ordering new products to sell in the area.

In Trad province, the border area is experiencing a large decline in the number of people crossing over to gamble at the famous casino there. Group tours are canceling their trips as well.

For the ports exporting to Cambodia and Vietnam, specifically the Chalalai, Krittawan, and the Kalapangha port, there has been a decline in buying and selling there as well.

Meanwhile, the border at Chanthaburi seems less effected where people are still crossing to buy instant foods and other commodities.

Somebody might know about the situation around Hat Lek or Koh Kong ?

I have to go there next week ...:ermm:

I was there yesterday and it was fine. Quiet, no different from normal. Nothing out of the ordinary at all. No more soldiers, nothing like that.

That's a very poor and seemingly misleading choice of headline. The ENTIRE border is CLOSED ? I think someone needs to re-word this headline pretty quickly.

I would say they are closed. The list mentioned "Trad", which is Trat province, where Hat Lek is.

The nearest open border to get into Cambodia for visa runners from Bangkok and Pattaya is probably Aranyaphrathet/Poipet.

I think we got that. :)

What are the chances of them declaring war on each other (reminds me of January 2003, when this almost happened - anyone remember that?)? Small to non-existent, I hope.

This is breaking news, so the situation yesterday is irrelevant.

I say, - get Uncle Fester from the 'Adams Family' involved in this. He will help this situation.

He always found solutions. Much better than most of these politicians and generals.

Just stick a few light bulbs in the mouths of some of these people..... Presto!

I am not taking sides. - This applies to all countries. ...... Particularly to the UN and it's so called Security Councel.

I think that Bugs Bunny is better to watch these days! Oh, - the road runner and tasmanian devil too.

So,.... in the meantime while all of this plays out.... do not get too serious. Just have fun and watch some cartoons on TV.

These cartoons, ..... better not to watch...... we can comment..... but we cannot stop them.
